It's the movie they tried to pretend M. Night Shyamalan had nothing to do with: After Earth. Meanwhile, Elliott introduces us to the Crypt Keeper's brother, Stuart meets his Phantasm hero, and Dan just needs to explain a few things first.

Movie Summary[]

Premise[]

After crash landing on the uninhabited planet Earth, adolescent Kitai Raige must perform a fetch quest while being pursued by a ferocious alien monster which literally smells fear.


Story

People were forced to leave Earth a millennium ago to establish a new home on Nova Prime. Now, Gen. Cypher Raige heads Nova Prime's most-prominent family. Cypher's teenage son, Kitai, feels enormous pressure to follow in his father's legendary footsteps–which strains their relationship. Cypher and Kitai set out on a trip to mend their bond, but when their craft crashes on Earth's hostile surface, each must trust the other greatly–or perish.
